The one issue with memcache as a session handler is that it is not  
persistent.  If one of your memcache servers happens to go down, users  
whose sessions happen to reside on those servers will be logged out  
(although newer beta versions of the PHP memcache lib attempt to work  
around this).  Something to be aware of.
